Golf cart cables do not refer to the small gauge control wiring in your vehicle, but rather the heavier gauge cables to conduct power from the batteries through your electrical components to the motor. Although traditionally at the 36 volt or 48 volt level, 6 gauge golf cart power cables have been sufficient for STOCK applications; many high performance modifications require thicker gauge wires to conduct higher power levels. We’ll discuss these high performance modifications and how determine the proper wire size for your application.
A local customer recently called our shop to inquire about the melted tail light lenses on his Club Car DS model golf cart. He explained the situation and e-mailed us some pictures. We had a couple theories on what had caused his problem, but he wanted us to pick up the cart, track down the issue and solve it. We did just that and thought our findings would be helpful to other golf cart owners.
